Abstract: The rapid industrialization and modernization of the People's Republic of China's economy have significantly aggravated the nation's carbon emission-induced climate change adversities. Under this premise, this study attempts to analyze the roles of green investments and other key macroeconomic aggregates in reducing carbon emissions in 30 provinces in China from 1995 to 2017. The robust econometric tools efficient in handling cross-sectional dependency and slope heterogeneity issues were utilized. The Westerlund cointegration analysis confirms the long-term association between the variables of concern. Moreover, the elasticity estimates from the cross-section augmented autoregressive distributed a lag approach indicate that investments in green projects are seen to reduce short- and long-term carbon emission levels. In contrast, the extraction of natural resources, the development of the financial sector, and energy investments increase carbon emissions, both in the short and long term. Furthermore, the Dumitrescu and Hurlin causality analysis indicate bidirectional causation amongst carbon emissions and the other macroeconomic aggregates considered in this study.
